My father always kept aquariums when I was a child, and I adored them then, and am just rediscovering that now. I have a tank I love at work, and I am loving every minute of the battle with my new tank at home... now that I've found this site, and know how to mitigate the damage of an ignorant start!
My kid is starting a cycling process tomorrow for his tank, and I've already got my mind on what I want in the future. The far future though... I am thinking a year from today... which is my BIRTHDAY!
Anyway, it looks like I am going to need a custom built, but I am afraid to actually find out how pricey that may be. I figured if the tank to fit one of the two spaces I have in mind exists, you guys will know of it! The first area would have to be within the parameters of 48 x 24 x 15 1/2 (WxDxH). The second would need to fall within 29 x 24 x 15 1/2.
I really really wanted to put it in an area that is probably impossible, because it is 12 in high... with no additional clearance for hood, etc.
Incidentally, I want to keep a planted discus tank. I realize I am only talking like two discus... for now... I have an extra closet on a ground level slab foundation....
So does anyone have any advice on where to look for odd tank sizes or am I going to have to save up for custom?
